PIC: Thanksgiving Dinned at Zen Buffet. Plate #1: Sushi, sashimi, crab legs, seaweed salad.

This year, my Aunt & Uncle didn’t have the time to make the full-blown traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

Instead, they reserved 2 huge tables for our party of 20+. When I got here at 5:30 and walked past the masses of people waiting to get in, I got the stink-eye from other Chinese people for walking right in without a wait.

This is the first plate of my Thanksgiving dinner.
